Summer and Winter Term Teaching

Scope: Who is Covered by this Policy?



Summer and Winter Term teaching is equally available to all full-time non-visiting members of the faculty in a department with the approval of the divisional dean. While departmental policy and curricular needs may further specify eligibility:

  1. no rank will be systematically discriminated against in the selection of eligible faculty; and
  2. faculty members may not be required to teach during the Summer or Winter Term.

The University does not permit the use of “guaranteed” Summer or Winter Term teaching as a recruiting inducement.

Summer and Winter Term courses are normally designated as “enrollment contingent” (go/no go). Summer and Winter Term instructional staff will receive an appointment specifying the nature and contingencies of the service.

Policy establishing the pay schedule and the maximum limits on earnings for the Summer and Winter Term instruction shall be made University wide. No division may impose limits at variance with University policy.
